UW Poll Shows Disapproval of Health Care Law

A University of Wyoming poll shows that a strong majority of residents continue to disapprove of the federal Affordable Care Act.

The health care reform law is opposed by 66 percent of the poll respondents, compared to 24 percent who approve.

The law was enacted in 2010. A similar survey conducted two years ago showed almost identical results.

UW political science director Jim King says the poll indicates that support for the health care law remains more unpopular in Wyoming than in the U.S. as a whole.

The statewide telephone survey of 668 Wyoming citizens was conducted in October by UW's Survey Research Center. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
